From Grape To Glass
Experience Fine Wines at One Of The Best Pubs With Rooms in the New Forest
In fact, we’re more than just a pub with rooms; we’re proud to say that we are an inn. As pubs and inns are a prominent part of British culture, patrons have the highest of standards and rightly so. We offer our guests and patrons a welcoming, pleasurable experience that they might not expect.
Much loved by all who visit, The Bell Inn has been in the same family for over 230 years – we know a thing or two about delighting our guests with the finest wines, fresh food and comfortable beds. You don’t need to venture into the city or to an overpriced bar to discover new taste sensations; our owner, Robert Crosthwaite Eyre, is quite the wine connoisseur and personally selects all the wine in our cellar.
If you’re new to wine, then our team is on-hand to help with any questions you have or any recommendations you need. You might be surprised to learn that there are over 1,300 commercial wine grape varieties, but only 150 of these make up the majority of wine produced and consumed around the world. There’s plenty of wine to sample, and we’re sure to have a bottle to go with your favourite dish.
Whether you enjoy a summer’s afternoon in our beautiful New Forest beer garden with a crisp, cold Sauvignon Blanc or prefer to cosy up in front of the fire with a hearty Rioja, we’ve got the wine for you.
